Michael Grange: Kelly Olynyk is in Miami being evaluated by Heat re: bone bruise he suffered on his knee in Canada’s exhibition game vs. Nigeria last Thursday. As much as Olynyk wants to play at World Cup I can only presume the team will have a lot of input on what ends up happening.

More on Kelly Olynyk Injury

Michael Grange: So Chris Boucher is confirmed OUT for the @FIBAWC (personal reasons). Kelly Olynyk (bruised knee) will take a week off but will continue on to Worlds as planned.
Ira Winderman: Kelly Olynyk injured during Canada exhibition, initial report is not feared serious sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
Anthony Chiang: Kelly Olynyk will play tonight, but will not start and will not play big minutes. Rodney McGruder is available and will dress tonight, but Spo not sure he will play.
Kelly Olynyk went through the morning shootaround but was held out for a fifth consecutive game due to a strained left shoulder. The Heat next play Saturday night against the Memphis Grizzlies at AmericanAirlines Arena, before a two-day break. "He's not ready to play, but he's progressing. He's getting better -- still not full contact," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "It'll heal on its own time. He is getting better. He's making progress. He's getting ready to play. As long as he’s getting better, that's a good sign for me."
Ira Winderman: Kelly Olynyk to be listed as doubtful for Friday due to shoulder. Rodney McGruder practiced today but Spoelstra not committing to him playing Friday.
Anthony Chiang: Olynyk is not playing. Ellington is going to warm up with the intention to play.
The fact the Heat traded for Babbitt could be a sign forward Kelly Olynyk, who strained his right shoulder and missed his first game of the season on Wednesday, could be out for a while. The Heat played Wednesday’s game without Olynyk and leading three-point shooter Wayne Ellington, who also has a shoulder injury.
Ira Winderman: Per Heat:; Kelly Olynyk suffered a left shoulder strain in the 1st quarter. He will be reevaluated during halftime.
The wait is (almost) over when it comes to Kelly Olynyk who could make his regular season debut as early as Sunday’s game against the Denver Nuggets. Olynyk will be listed as questionable for the Nuggets game, a clear indicator that he is on the cusp of seeing his first action this season. The 7-foot big man underwent offseason shoulder surgery in the spring with a return established at that time being the middle of this month.
"When the time comes it will come," Olynyk said. "You don't want to force it, you don't want to push anything and go backwards at all. Every day you come in here, you want to take a step forward. That's the goal every time you come here and every time I wake up, to take a step forward towards playing a bunch of minutes. ... For me, it's all about when you're comfortable and when you feel like you're ready, then we'll be back. "It's part of the shoulder -- they said it's going to take five or six months and I think five months was Oct. 16. So we still have about three weeks left, which is probably the middle of November, I guess, is what he's thinking in terms of the timetable we were told at the start. It's feeling good and the strength is coming and the stamina is coming. It's just a matter of getting it to where we want it to be before we put it at risk."
Scott Souza: #Celtics center Kelly Olynyk said shoulder feeling good, getting stronger. How much he can do to start camp to be determined.
But Olynyk isn’t quite ready to commit to having it surgically repaired this summer, a summer in which the Canadian National team for which he is a key member, is still in the process of trying to qualify for the summer Olympics in Rio. “If I rest it, I would definitely partake in the Olympic (qualifying tournament),” Olynyk told CSN at a fundraising event for Horizons for Homeless on Sunday. “That would be the reason to not get surgery at this point. If you rest it, it’ll get better but never solve the problem. That’s what we’re looking at.”
Getting surgery immediately would still likely result in him missing some or all of training camp. And depending on how his shoulder responds following surgery, he could potentially miss the start of the season. That’s why Olynyk said he’ll make a decision very soon. “I’m still looking at it,” Olynyk said. “Probably make a decision sooner than later because the recovery is so long if you do get it. It’s hard to give up, Olympics, but when you do look at it, if you get hurt it’s even worse to give up the next season. It’s a tough decision.” “The doctors are saying it’s kind of inevitable,” Olynyk said.
Adam Himmelsbach: Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is out, Brad Stevens says. Big hit for the Celtics.
Kelly Olynyk says his right shoulder injury is improving, but the timeline for his return to action remains the same. Olynyk, who suffered a right shoulder sprain injury on Feb. 10 against the Los Angeles Clippers, won’t return until the first week of March at the earliest. When I asked him what he was able to do now, Olynyk told CSNNE.com, “bike, a little lifting, the same old, same old.”
Indeed, Olynyk’s rehabilitation has increased in activity somewhat; he later told a group of reporters that he’s still not doing anything on the court with contact.
Scott Souza: #Celtics president Danny Ainge: will sit down w/ David Lee & agents next 24-48 hours. Kelly Olynyk injury will not affect (potential buyout)
A. Sherrod Blakely: Kelly Olynyk had second opinion. The shoulder is still sore. He won't be playing for the next couple of weeks, Danny Ainge said.
Adam Himmelsbach: Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is getting a second opinion and is out this weekend.

Lowry is certainly going to give it. In all matters. As a member of the players’ association competition committee, he worked with the league in setting up every facet of life for the 22 teams that are now gathered near Orlando for the resumption of the suspended season later this month. He was involved in developing testing protocols, scheduling, what is allowed and what’s not, and has made it clear to his teammates how important that is. He is the franchise’s conduit to a healthy existence.
